Student contributions to public conversations about science

Serendip materials include papers written by Bryn Mawr College students. These frequently prove to usefully fill a niche on the web between professional writing and very popularized writing. Many of these papers are both highly cited as judged by Google ranking on popular search terms. And are the foundation for continuing public discussion of their respective topics as seen from comments in associated on-line forums.

For each of the search terms in the left column, a student web paper appears highly ranked in Google searches, as shown in the middle column. The third column shows the number of comments made on the paper in an associated public on-line forum. Sample as of 28 March 2008.
